Mo Abudu Becomes The First African To Receive The MIPTV Médailles d’Honneur

On Monday 8th April 2019, media mogul Mo Abudu received the MIPTV Médailles d’Honneur at the 2019 edition of the International Market for Content Development and Distribution holding in Cannes, France.

Mo Abudu, who was one out of only four recipients of the award has become the first Nigerian and African to receive the award. The award is given to senior executives who have made their mark in the global television industry, as well as contributed to the development of the international television community.

She shared the stage with three other incredible people: Stéphane Courbit, chairperson of the Banijay Group in France; Ilene Chaiken, US writer, showrunner and producer; and UK managing director of Sky Vision, Jane Millichip.

According to MIPTV’s website, the brand is “the one and only market that is dedicated to content development and distribution for drama series (original and scripted formats), kids content (animation and live action), documentaries and formats (scripted and non-scripted).”


The brand also provides a unique platform for discovering new content and stories that will travel the world by focusing not only on early-stage development by connecting rising producers and talents with commissioners and financiers, but also distributors and buyers for finished programme acquisitions and presales.

To receive the award, Mo Abudu kept things simple in a black strapless dress with 3D floral detailing on the lower half. This she paired with a pair of black suede platform sandals and a black bag to finish off her monochrome look. She opted for black smokey eyes and nude-inspired lips with a centre-parted bob hairdo to flaunt her toned shoulders.
